When patch 6.3 is released, the automatic demolition timer will resume in Final Fantasy 14. Patch 6.3 is set to release in early January, with a concrete release date expected to arrive soon. Players who have not entered their own house or the house of their free company will have a limited time to do so before the house is lost. Once the house is lost, all housing items inside can be retrieved by speaking to a resident guardian NPC in any living quarters within 35 days to retrieve them. Players can also claim up to 80% reimbursement of the cost of the plot, whether it was won through the first-come, first-served system or the current real estate lottery system. It is currently unknown whether any housing land that will be demolished after Patch 6.3 will be sold through the Real Estate Lottery or not, so players will have to wait and see what approach the developers take. The auto-demolition timer may be paused once again at Square Enix’s discretion, for any technical or real reason.

The automatic demolition timer was discontinued in December 2021, around the same time as Endwalker has been freed. Although the expansion was successful, the login queues and error codes that plagued Final Fantasy 14 gamers for days gave Square Enix no choice but to suspend auto demolition timers until things were sorted out. The timer was later extended indefinitely into early 2022, in light of real-world news surrounding Ukraine and global natural disasters occurring at the time.

Since then, the addition of the Dynamis Data Center in patch 6.28 and the announcement of new living quarters coming in patch 6.3 gave Square Enix enough reason to resume automatic demolitions in Final Fantasy 14. Only time will tell how many homes will be lost in the process and how quickly new neighborhoods will fill up.
